Our mission is to enhance the lives of youth by promoting team-building, establishing mentorship, and building character through the game of golf.

The Gator Junior Golf Association began with passionate golf coaches and an underserved need for youth in the greater Gainesville community.
After playing competitive golf in his hometown, our Executive Director, Sean Warner, moved to Gainesville to attend The University of Florida in 2011. At the time, no organizations existed to teach junior golf—so began our journey.
Started in 2016, the Gator Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit youth development program that focuses on teaching life skills through the game of golf. Gator Junior Golf exists to rebuild the game of golf in Gainesville through its youth.
Since we started, we have introduced golf to over 100 participants, established programs in three locations, partnered with Girls Place and Reichert House to deliver after-school programs, and provided scholarships to dozens of kids.
